Jumping Creek Road

Jumping Creek Road is an important local link road that carries more than 8,100 vehicles per day, with the traffic volume expected to double to 15,000 vehicles per day by 2035.

Jumping Creek Road connects Ringwood-Warrandyte Road in Warrandyte to Homestead Road in Wonga Park, as well as surrounding suburbs and the tourist destinations of the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges.

Between January 2009 and December 2013, a total of 17 crashes resulting in casualties were reported at Jumping Creek Road, including one fatal crash.

The Jumping Creek Road upgrade will deliver safe, sustainable, functional and site responsive infrastructure that protects and enhances the local landscape.


Jumping Creek Road Community Reference Panel

In January 2017, Council established a Jumping Creek Road Community Reference Panel, which consists of both residents and relevant local business and community group representatives.

The panel is an opportunity for Council to provide updates, highlight issues, respond to queries and share ideas with the community and to receive feedback on proposals about the design and reconstruction of Jumping Creek Road.

The panel also considers issues previously raised by the community during the consultation process for the Jumping Creek Road Development Framework.

  • Stage one works nearly complete on Jumping Creek Road

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The first stage of works is now nearing completion on Jumping Creek Road.

    Due to some weather delays and challenges due to the current stage four COVID-19 restrictions, works are currently scheduled to be complete in mid-September 2020 with the road opening to through-traffic soon after.

    All excavation works, the relocation of underground services and underground drainage have been completed as has the installation of kerb and channel between Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and Nelson Drive.

    The focus over the next couple of weeks will be asphalting the road surface and completing the footpaths along this stretch of road.

    Construction works on Jumping Creek Road are being completed in accordance with the Victorian Government’s stage four coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions currently in place for metropolitan Melbourne.

    Thank you to everyone for your patience as we complete these works and road detours are in place. We look forward to re-opening Jumping Creek Road once the upgrade works are complete.

    Works on stage one of the upgrade of Jumping Creek Road are progressing with construction underway between Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and Nelson Drive in Warrandyte

    Since construction started in mid-April works have included re-levelling the road area, which will help to improve sightlines and safety along this section of road.

    Excavation works are now nearly completed and many underground services have been relocated.

    Works to install new underground drainage pipes are about half way through. We have installed 50 per cent of the kerb and channel and will soon start works on the retaining walls along the side of the road before laying the asphalt.

    Works are on track to be completed by the end of August 2020.

    The first stage of the Jumping Creek Road reconstruction project is now underway.

    With works starting in mid-April, this important project aims to improve the road’s safety while upgrading the existing infrastructure and increasing connectivity for pedestrians. Weather permitting, the construction of this stage is expected to be complete by the end of August 2020.

    The road is now closed between Yarra Road and Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and will remain closed for the duration of this construction period. Only local resident and emergency vehicle access is permitted during this time. The road closure is in place for the safety of all road users during construction and to allow the works be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Detours are in place with traffic diverted via Yarra Road and Brysons Road. To prepare for the increased traffic flows along these roads, some preliminary works were completed along the diversion route. Additional road maintenance works, signage and speed control signs are currently being arranged and the condition of the detour routes is being closely monitored.

    Construction works will get underway this month on the upgrade of Jumping Creek Road between the Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and Nelson Drive in Warrandyte.

    To allow for the reconstruction of this 350 metre section of road, the road will be closed to through traffic from 21 April 2020 until the end of August.

    Detours will be in place via Yarra Road and Brysons Road during this period. Emergency service vehicle and local access will be maintained at all times.

    This is the first step of construction for the Jumping Creek Road project.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    We understand everyone in our community is responding to the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

    At this stage, we do not foresee there are any impacts to the delivery of this road upgrade project.

    The safety of our community is our top priority during this time.

    In Manningham, we are following advice from the Department of Health and Human Services and encourage everyone to practise good hygiene and social distancing in our community.

    Construction on the upgrade of Jumping Creek Road will start in April this year, with the first stage to reconstruct the road between the Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and Nelson Drive in Warrandyte.

    This is the first step of construction for Jumping Creek Road, which ultimately will see the full length of Jumping Creek Road between Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and Homestead Road in Wonga Park upgraded, to improve safety for all road users.

    Works on the initial 350 metre section of Jumping Creek Road include lowering part of the road by more than one metre.

    Due to the construction safety issues associated with these works this section of road will be closed to through traffic during construction, which is anticipated to be completed between early April and the end of August 2020.

    While road closures and detours will be in place for this area, emergency service vehicle and local access will be maintained at all times.
